The 6 God weighed in on the face of the franchise getting shipped to San Antonio in exchange for Kawhi Leonard on Thursday … saying “To my brother @demar_derozan I want to say 10 million thank you’s on behalf of YOUR city. You are a fixture in Toronto forever and you gave everything you had.”
“Through your leadership we had the most exciting years in franchise history. I am grateful to have witnessed your combination of skill, persistence, and loyalty from the same seats every night. Thank you for being an incredible captain and an even better friend.”
It’s a nice gesture from Drake … but DeRozan is reportedly super pissed about the deal … and feels the team lied to him about their plans for the future.
The “In My Feelings” rapper also welcomed the ex-Spurs superstar to the North … saying “we look forward to a this new chapter and we welcome you to the most intense and supportive city in NBA basketball!!!”
